Read Tom Neely’s Surreal ‘Popeye’ Homage, ‘Doppelganger’ [Full Comic]

Tom Neely loves Popeye. To read his take on the Tom Neely Wants To Draw Popeye Facebook page, he’s downright obsessed, “I started this page because Craig Yoe posted on his Facebook wall that he is editing new Popeye comics and is looking for an artist. I wanna do it! I already drew my own surrealistic doppelgänger mini-comic! I’ve got anchors tattooed on my arms! I eat a lot of spinach (’cause I’m vegan and it’s delicious).”

Neely’s not lying about the surreal tone of his Popeye story, which pits the sailor man against his exact double in seemingly psychological battle that manifests itself in all-too-tangible ways. Even if a gig from Yoe would mean treading ground more akin to creator E.C. Segar’s tales, Neely’s a more than worthy of Segar’s legacy based on his art chops alone. You can read Neely’s full Doppelganger comic, reposted with permission, after the jump and order a 16-page black and white printed version for $6 from Neely’s official online store. What’s more, fans can download a free ereader version of Neely’s Popeye comic and other works at
